Pokémon Flashback Blog – Part 1

For those who don’t know, I used to run a social network about Pokémon.  Unfortunately, those jerks decided to start charging money to use their services so my social network is now being shut down.  I don’t care THAT much, as Facebook kinda serves the same purpose.  However, I did have some blogs that I’d written that I don’t want to lose when they delete my network.  So I’m going to do a Flashback Blog for the next few days, re-sharing my blogs and keeping them on THIS blog to be cherished… forever!  😛

I’m Scared of Ho-Oh

Happy Easter everyone!  I don’t really celebrate the holiday, but I do enjoy picking up piles of 50% off Easter candy the day after!  lol

Anyway, to ‘celebrate’ Easter this year, I’ve been hatching Turtwig Eggs.  In Pokemon Diamond.  Why???

Cuz I’m scared of Ho-Oh!  I recently beat the 8th gym in HG.  Next I’m supposed to battle the Kimono Girls and then climb to the top of a tower, view a fantastic cut-scene involving the Kimono Girls and Ho-Oh’s arrival, and finally battle the giant bird and capture him as my own.

But I’m too scared.  It’s a lot of pressure.  I’m still debating if I want to use my Master Ball on Ho-Oh or save it for later.

So instead of dealing with Ho-Oh, I’ve been procrastinating.  Specifically, last night I made a serious effort to start succeeding in the Pokeathalon.  And succeed I did!

I won the Speed Competition!

As you can see, I received the highest score and the Gold Medal in the Speed Competition at the Pokeathalon!  I will post some info on the HG/SS Forum regarding the strategies for these events.  My main goal with the Speed Competition was to find a use for some of the ‘less effective’ battling Pokemon.  Specifically, the two special Pichu’s that I obtained via GameStop and the Spiky-Eared Pichu event.  Check out how cute my team was!

My Pichu-Pikachu Team

From left to right, we have:  Spiky-Eared Pichu, Pikachu-Colored Pichu, and Surfing Pikachu.  I must say, my two little Pichu’s were GREAT in this event!  I ended up using the Pikachu-Colored Pichu in the Jumping Competition too, and he kicked ass there as well!  GOOOOO PICHU!!!!  ❤

So that’s what I’m currently working on in HG while I build up my Pokemon, and my own courage to do what I have to do lol!  But I’m not ready yet.  That’s why I’ve been hatching eggs.  It’s Easter after all, so I figured I should mess around with some eggs.  😛  I’m going to transfer all my baby Turtwigs to “My Pokemon Ranch” (WiiWare) and hopefully start making a real dent in the requirements for obtaining a Mew from Hayley at the Ranch.  It’s gonna take a while but I’ll get it someday!  xD
